( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
After I got through about half of my reply, I thought to check your home node and realized that you had more XP than I and I suspected that I was teaching my grandpa how to suck eggs (you can just ignore that comment if you ain't from the South). I almost scratched the post, but figured that I have tripped so many times on that little problem that I figured it might be worth rehashing to others. Sorry if it was a bit pedantic.

Hey, what do other monks think? Was I explaining something that was too obvious, like "here's how to add two numbers together"? I wouldn't mind getting a feel for that. I don't want to waste bandwidth if everyone feels they are way beyond that.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
